Self-confidence Produces Fine Results, Banana Wall, 2008

10,000 bananas and glue

installation views from the exhibition Things I Have Learned In My Life So Far at Deitch Projects, New York City, 2008

The opening of the exhibition at Deitch Projects in New York featured a wall of 10,000 bananas. Green bananas created a pattern against a background of yellow bananas spelling out the sentiment: Self-confidence produces fine results. After a number of days the green bananas turned yellow too and the type disappeared. When the yellow background bananas turned brown, the type (and the self-confidence) appeared again, only to go away when all bananas turned brown.
